In October, 2019, Bayview Historical Society completed a five-year project to realize the location of a BHP Shipyard fabricated artwork - THE BIG FISH sculpture - in India Basin. This video chronicles the effort to relocate and restore the work, and celebrates an original artist at The Point - the largest art colony in the county located at Hunters-Point Shipyard.
